There are multiple ways of providing instruction in the art of photography, but it takes a real master to size up the deficiencies of class participants and flip them so that customers come away from the experience feeling on top of the world. This is exactly the feeling I had as I completed the two-hour class with Zim. I've been... More

Prior to our trip to Yellowstone, Grand Teton, and Rocky Mountain National Parks we had an unbelievable experience with Zim. My wife and I are World Travelers and love taking pictures along the way. We have over 125,000 pictures stored on our computer. After spending 2 1/2 hours with Zim, our photography expertise improved significantly. She made us realize how... More

This was my second photosafari with Zim. I had the opportunity to take other photo workshops but so far i find that workshops with nyc photosafari are hands down the best bang for the buck. Zim is not only a talented photographer, she is a patient and engaging TEACHER. She checks everyone's shots before moving to another location and offers... More

i went on the night tour, with the lovely guide Zim, and i found that i learned a great deal not only on how to manipulate the camera in different situations and conditions but also the tripod, which Zim so kindly let me borrow for the tour. I would highly recommend going on a tour if you would like to... More

The instructor, Zim, was very helpful and encouraging to try different shots and ways to get the shot. I would sign up for another one next time I am back in NYC.

Not only were the NY photo safari team incredibly accommodating when we had to change our booking date due to illness, but the experience of the safari itself was absolutely excellent. We booked a private group for our family of 4 based on the Iconic New York tour, met up with Zim and enjoyed a whirlwind 3 hours exploring the... More

I just did the MET photo safari, and since I was the only one attending that class, it was basically a long private lesson! Zim is fantastic--very knowledgeable and creative, but also very approachable and skilled at presenting things at a beginner level. The time really flew by and I learned so much--it will definitely change my shooting practices going... More

I participated in the Central Park at Night safari with Zim as our instructor. I was the first to arrive and it was terrific just chatting with Zim while we were waiting for the others. I found out later how knowledgeable she is as well!! She gave some great instruction and made the whole experience fun as well as educational.... More

I signed up for the Highline Park and Iconic New York Safaris and had an excellent experience. The session started with students describing intentions, then our instructor (Zim) did some basic instruction. After the instruction we were given a simple assignment. I found the structure of instruction/assignment to be very helpful as the assignment solidified the instruction. Zim reviewed most... More
